Ruby Tuesday - Tuberous Begonia

I was in Southwoods nursery last weekend and took a few photos.  Tuberous begonias come in an amazing variety of colors.  I am always seduced by their beauty but bring them home only to watch them curl up and die.  They are a bit too fussy for my garden.

See more Ruby Tuesday

Oh how I agree with you. Beautiful in the shop but get them home and the flowers seem to drop immediately.

They do make a great Ruby Tuesday entry. But like you said, some things are probably best left at the store. I also like plants that are less fussy and more forgiving of the weather extremes as well as my potential neglect.

My begonia's here in Florida have survived all the other plants. It may be the humidity, but I think they are strong because they bloom and grow all year long here.

Beautiful brilliant colour. I too have a brown thumb with begonias.

Such a rich rich red. They are a bright delight.
